|PC with Intel Architecture (x86) processor running Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4.0, or 2000|
|Microsoft macro assembler (MASM) version 6.15 and 32-bit linker version 5.12.8181. These are available free of charge from Microsoft.|
- If you are not running Windows 2000 or ME, download and install the Microsoft Windows Installer for your platform.
- Download the ECC software. Right click on ECCInstaller.msi and select Install. Note: this will change the file associations for .scm and .asm files. In the following, ECC\ refers to the ECC installation directory (by default C:\Program Files\ECC\).
- If you already have MASM version 6.15 installed, you do not need to reinstall it; see ECC\Readme.txt. Otherwise, to obtain MASM version 6.15, download the Visual C++ Processor Pack from Microsoft. This will give you a self-extracting archive vcpp.exe. Do not run it, but open it with WinZip. Copy the files ml.exe and ml.err to ECC\bin\.
- If you already have a 32-bit linker installed (for example, the linker version 6.00.8168 distributed with Microsoft Visual C++), you do not need to reinstall it; see ECC\Readme.txt. Otherwise, to obtain the Microsoft 32-bit linker version 5.12.8181, download the Windows 98 DDK from Microsoft. This will give you a self-extracting archive bins_ddk.exe. Do not run it, but open it with WinZip, then open the file bins_ddk.cab with WinZip. Copy the files bin_link.exe and bin_mspdb50.dll to ECC\bin\, renaming them link.exe and mspdb50.dll, respectively.

This software is highly experimental and is provided "as is".
